Interesting in small doses
These episodes are for those people who enjoy harking back to a much more nostalgic time. However, since I was a child, I squirmed whenever I saw orphan Annie or living witth father cartoons in the newspaper. I just could not bear to see those boiled oyster like eyes without any eyeballs. Definitely horrible. And that is why when I listened to just one episode of orphan Annie today, I just wished that someone with some sense would have used some other photograph to advertise this radio program without oyster like eyes, and a terrible simper, so favored by the artist.
Anyway, keep up the good work.

#31 and #32 are actually the same episode. The latter is recorded faster and is a little clearer.
Orphan Annie must have been one of the hardest-working marketers of the era! The way the promotional giveaways and trinket-sales are woven into the storylines gets pretty intense.
Thanks to whoever uploaded these. I wish there were more!
I noticed when listening through the episodes for stories where Annie met journalist characters -- who are my particular old time radio fetish. The "story arc" I found also coincides with Annie's birthday -- and your big chance to get a birthstone ring just like the one Daddy Warbucks sent Annie... :-)
